Living our values

“Born and raised out of a Chinese working class family, having spent majority of the younger years witnessing China’s ups-and-downs through difficult cycles, there is one simple but most valuable lesson I’ve learnt: Always do the right thing.  The Firm’s value of 'We choose right over easy' strongly resonates with me, as making things right is difficult, delivering the difficult creates barrier, and having barrier means value.”
